Regardless of whether you are cautious about what you eat and drink, there is certainly a time when you want to indulge in things that are not really good for you.
Whether you are looking for a way to overcome regular hangovers, or you just want to detoxify your body from the everyday unhealthy diet you are on, there is one thing you should be consuming: Blueberries.
And while eating fresh blueberries is probably the safest way to go, there are also many different ways you can incorporate these berries in your day to day diet.
My personal favorite?
Blueberries and Pancakes!
It’s no secret I love pancakes and I am constantly looking for ways to improve the regular recipe or kick it up a notch, and the place where I search for the best American pancakes and my newest cooking companion, is a new cooking app. Click here to see what I am talking about.
First things first, let’s say a word or two about blueberries and their features and health benefits.
Blueberries, like other berries, get their color from anthocyanins.
As it turns out, these pigments are not only the main source blueberries get their color from, but they are responsible for the many health benefits attributed to blueberries.
Blueberries are the best antioxidants on earth! They play a crucial role in regulating our blood sugar levels, as well as guarding our cardiovascular system in general. Need I say more?
Now that we’ve established that these berries are packed with good-for-you features, let’s see how can we combine them with America’s favorite: pancakes.
- Prepare the regular pancake batter or your favorite pancakes and top them with fresh blueberries.
- Fold fresh or frozen whole blueberries into the batter.
- Blend blueberries together with the other ingredients.
Easy Detox Pancakes
While I love all of the above-mentioned ways of incorporating blueberries in my pancakes, if I had to choose a favorite, it would be the last one.
The Blender Blueberry Pancakes are my all-time favorite recipe because of five things:
* Preparing these beauties is easy as ABC.
* They get a bluish color that I LOVE.
* They are super delicious.
* They are incredibly healthy!
* They allow for as many different toppings as you want.
But, just in case you want to upgrade the recipe, try and fold in whole blueberries as well. This way you will double the amount of blueberries added, thus doubling their beneficial effects.
The final result will be a stack of delicious, cloud-like bluish pancakes that are filled with nutrients that are good for you. Not to mention every pancake bite will additionally be improved by the presence of whole berries.
If you are a pancake lover, then I tell you, you will instantly fall in love with the combination of them and blueberries. On top of it all, you will be doing your body the favor of detoxifying it by simultaneously enjoying a scrumptious protein infused meal.
